While clearing out the warehouse we found a few copies of this incredible album. Available now for FIRE SALE price until supplies run out.

EARLYMAN:  Two Pentecostalists from  Columbus, shielded from pop culture their entire lives, discover rock at the age of 19. Kicked out by their families and ostracized by the population, their adopted kin are the vintage works Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Celtic Frost, Metallica and Slayer. Nurtured and warmed, they move to New York City and start
a band whose elemental street thrash recalls a time before metal splintered into 54 micro
categories.

Mike Conte alternates between a '73 Gibson SG and a white '84 Jackson Randy Rhodes Flying-V, pre-sharkfin inlay. The latter was Sandimas-made, of course. The guitars feed through 2 full stacks: a Marshall JCM 800 and a Peavey 5150. Full German-made Bogner cabs. He occasionally uses an MXR Distortion Plus pedal, but in general, he remarks, "All my distortion is natural -- as it should be."

Similarly: "Purposely (mainly for the sake of pissing off the current metal world and not relying on any lame crutches) I do not use ANY alternate tunings, such as drop-D. If it can sound thunderous in standard tuning then I've accomplished my goal."

Adam Bennati plays a five-piece Zickos glass acrylic drum kit manufactured in 1972 only.It
weighs over 500 pounds.
